I've Got a Secret

Have you ever noticed how fashion designers can create these awesome pieces of colorful vibrant, fashion forward inspirations and yet they only ever wear black?

or the hair stylist who can cut color and blowdry hair within an inch of it's life but wears their own hair in a simple pushed back ponytail?

or the artist who paints all the colors of the earth and lives a life of vibrant expression, yet when you go to their homes they have a bed, a desk, clothes on the floor and an empty fridge. (which actually sounds like my house right now, sshhhh)

my secret....I rarely EVER wear jewelry..I can go for weeks without even thinking about putting on a ring, I never wear necklaces, and the last time I wore a bracelet I was about 28 years old. For real, believe it. However, when it is time to go out dancing ya better believe I have on my chandelier earrings and cocktail ring. That's about it. Yeah, earrings are probably the most frequent piece of jewelry I will wear. Don't get me wrong, I love jewelry, I admire it , always want to know how it is made, collect it...I just don't wear it often. You should see my jewelry drawer, it's filled with stuff ;-)

At the advice of my co-worker Karen who is the sweetest thing, I decided to start wearing some of my jewelry; a walking advertisement I suppose. Two days ago I wore this bracelet (the above pictures) to work for the heck of it...and within one hour into my workday I already had a client asking where I got it , and how much. I told her that I had made it and within seconds I had an order for a bracelet....How exciting!..

Beautiful! What talent you have. Of course, you should wear your work and advertise it. Congrats on the order!
